Gecube releases dual-GPU X1600

By Justin Mann on March 7, 2006, 2:01 PM
Gecube has announced the release of one of the first next-gen dual-GPU cards. Based on the Radeon, their X1600 Gemini sports two individual GPUs on a single PCB, supports 4 displays, and has Crossfire functionality between the two GPUs, meaning you essentially have two seperate cards mashed together. The card is only available in PCI-Ex, of course, and there are no details as to pricing ranges. ABit is also planning cards of this nature for retail soon, and likely 2006 will be the year that we see dual-GPU and SLI collide.

I'm surprised ati beat Nvidia to the competition, by relasing there Dual GPU. Usally Nv is on top of these type of things, oh well. I hope the first one they release is the 7900GTX it will destroy the X1600.
